VIZ-Steel reduces specific energy intensity of steel flats production
VIZ-Steel company (a member of NLMK Group) in the first 6 months of 2018 reduced specific energy intensity of GO steel flats production by 7.2% - down to 7.5 Gcal/t to the level of the first 6 months of 2017. The company reduced energy costs for RUB 3 million.
The result was achieved due to the programme of energy efficiency improvement programme, which includes measures for optimization of line operational modes, equipment replacement, introduction of energy efficient technologies.
In particular, in the cold rolling shop the system for supplying steam to thermal lines was repaired. Pump equipment was replaced for newer one at the water supply and industrial waste water treatment facilities. In the gas production area, reforming lines water supply mode was optimized. At the expense of repair of the piping insulation coating energy consumption on production of compressed air was decreased.
Thanks to the comprehensive energy efficiency improvement programme specific energy intensity of VIZ-Steel production decreased by 13% in the last five years.
